Experience southern hospitality at it’s best in the Lonestar state. Texas basketball is fantastic with teams to suit every level and tournaments available in early December and between Christmas and New Years, allowing maximum games in minimum time. Texans love hosting Aussies in their homes, providing a fantastic opportunity to learn about what life is like in the USA.
Between games there’s a huge range of sports and attractions to entertain you. Dallas, Houston and San Antonio all feature NBA teams, Dallas and Houston have NFL teams and there’s a whooping 21 college basketball teams across the state. Tour the home of the Dallas Cowboys, AT&T Stadium, checkout the daily cattle drive at Fort Worth Stockyards, and visit the site of the JFK assassination before getting your themepark fix at Six Flags in Dallas or San Antonio - the Batman 4D ride in San Antonio is incredible! Take in some US history at the Alamo, wander the Riverwalk in San Antonio, and if you’re looking for shopping, San Marcos has 350 outlet stores.
The Wild West of Texas is packed with hoops, sports and attractions to suit any tour group.
